Disease relevance of vanB


High impact information on vanB

  • The genomic region of BF13-97 flanking the transposon's site of insertion was cloned and sequenced revealing two open reading frames of 1,062 (vanA) and 954 (vanB) bp, respectively [1].

Chemical compound and disease context of vanB

  • These genes were localized downstream of the eugenol catabolism genes vanA and vanB, encoding vanillate-O-demethylase, on an EcoRI fragment (E230) that has recently been cloned from a Pseudomonas sp. strain HR199 genomic library [2].
